That 70's girl

top: lamb&flag sale! jeans: lamb&flag sale! shoes: loveD. purse: dooney&bourke thrifted. bracelets: vintage. necklace: tiffany&co. 

Hooray! Summer school is over and I got an A in Statistics! Sad part: I start the fall semester in ONE week. Yeah I know, barely time to relax. Good news: I got both this tank and these jeans for about 5 dollars each!!!!!!! How crazy is that!?! A really cool {hipster} store called Lamb&Flag was having their closing sale and I scored big!  I also felt a little...maybe a lot 70's inspired in this get-up and boy did I enjoy it. High-waisted flares and bright-colored fringe? Sign me up & let's party like it's 1973? :)

Pink & Gold

top: h&m. shorts: {i can't remember! they're oldies} shoes: sam edelman via nordies rack. bag: marc jacobs. necklace: thrifted. bracelets: forever21 & nordstrom. 

Recently, I have been having some fun with my make-up, which is a big step for me considering I have the same routine each morning when it comes to applying make-up. I even watched a video for how to do Kim Kardashian style make-up & this is what it came out to. Okay, so maybe I don't look like Kim's twin or anything, but I still felt like a Kardashian all day, obviously. Jarrett and I got lunch and scored big time on a major Lamb&Flag (closing) sale! My finds will be featured soon on the blog so come back for more!

Summer daze

top: free people via nordstrom rack. skirt: brandy melville. sandals: cathy jean. hat: urban outfitter (on sale). purse: dooney&bourke thrifted. necklace: tiffany&co. 

I have been in somewhat a daze for the past week. My life recently has consisted of enjoying the people around me as much as possible, studying like a crazy person for my Statistics tests, and taking advantage of my days off. On another note I got a new haircut! It's kind of messy/beachy hair & I love it! As you know from my previous post I just got a new job that starts in about a week & I feel so blessed! I've been busy figuring out my fall schedule and preparing myself for the business it will bring. The most important thing is to not get caught up in the little things, but to enjoy every present moment.

Changing course


{all photos have been pulled from my Pinterest - with the exception of the black&white Zara Kids pictures} 

I've definitely been out of the blogging loop for the past week, but I do have news. Some of you may be wondering why I am posting children's clothing/fashion photos when I typically stick to only my own outfit photos. Well, I love children and I am majoring in fashion so I recently decided to mix the two into one career path! I want to work in the baby/children's fashion industry! Of course, I'm not cutting off all other fashion opportunities, but I am going to get my feet wet and see how I like it. 
I was just hired at the baby store Naartjie (nar-chee) & I am super excited about this new journey. I thought I'd share it with all of you lovelies!  
The photos above are just a fun representation of the styles I love for children.
